The theory of intertextuality, which arose in the late 60s of the last century, is currently being actively studied and noted by the breadth and multiplicity of generalizations, and the notion of “intertextuality” has become one of the terminological symbols of contemporary philology. Elements of the literary intertextual method of studying literary works are widely used in the school methodology of teaching literature. The article analyzes the basic principles of school intertextual interpretation of artistic works in the plane of historical-functional and comparative research methods. Intertextuality is characterized as the property of one artistic work to be associated with other works and readers; as an effective way of forming the interpretive competence of students at school lessons. It is grounded that any school analysis of literary works should be based on a scientific literary background and requires appropriate training of a teacher-philologist. Some theses of researchers by intertextuality tests (I. Arnold, O. Chyrkov) have been specified and expanded in view of the method of school intertextual analysis. The basic types of intertextual connections that are most often used in school practice are defined and their sample list is given. In addition, the article gives an example of the use of intertextual analysis in the process of studying the story of Mikhail Bulgakov “A Dog’s Heart” with the parallels between the text of the literary work and biblical motives in order to form the interpretive competence of the students. It is proved that the conducted analysis contributes to the profound perception of the works by the students in accordance with the author’s plan. Also, the article focuses on the main characteristics of intertextuality, which correlates with the linguocultural concept “the text in the text”. To help teachers-philologists who use this kind of intertextual analysis of artistic works at literature lessons at school, the main provisions of the intertextual interpretation by Yuri Lotman of the novel by Mikhail Bulgakov “The Master and Margarita” from the stand-point of “text in the text” are analyzed.
